Vitality

May 2022 Edition

In the spirit of being sustainable, economically efficient, and allowing instant access to the latest Vitality Employee Newsletter, we provide all issues in electronic format. The May 2022 issue of Vitality continues to be in a unique format using Microsoft Office SWAY as we find ways to improvise and meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
